GRIMSBY DAY TRIP 07/07/2019

Every summer on the first Sunday in July, there is an annual one day trip organised by See Yep Association. This year is no exception. It was a sunny day with blue sky. The trip was led by our Chairman Mr. Kenny Tam and supported by our enthusiastic members and leaders. 85 people in total have joined the outing. Among those, most of them are elderly and elderly have mobility issues.

Grimsby, also Great Grimsby, is a large coastal English seaport and administrative centre in North East Lincolnshire, on the South Bank of the Humber Estuary, close to where it reaches the North Sea. It ran the largest fishing fleet in the world by the mid-20th century.

Our first destination was Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre. In there, they use sounds and smells to help to experience the life. The centre has hands on displays for all the family and also incorporate sounds and smells of the fishermen and their wives’ daily life. It shows us the height of the fishing industry of Great Grimsby, and let people who run fish and chips shops, take away shops and work in the food and catering industry have more in depth information and understanding in the fisheries industry.

After the museum, our coach took us to the beach where, nearby, some of us went to play mini golf, some of us enjoyed the local famous fish and chips, seafood; some of us played the funfair and the elderlies sat on the bench to enjoy the sunshine and scenery, fresh air, and kids used their imagination and creativity to build sand castle.

This was an unforgettable day trip. It's great to get together with friends, family and meet new friends. We managed to slow down just for a day and relax. Most importantly, we let our elderlies feel that they have been cared for and able to made the most out of such an enjoyable day, perfect!
